My father developed Greenhaven and turned the original mud pit into a beautiful lake with islands, lagoons, a bulkhead along the shore with rock that goes from the top of the bulkhead to the bottom of the lake. Behind the bulkhead is a beach with hundreds of palm trees that surround the lake. As far as we know, I held the record for the largest black bass caught in that lake for many years and I may still. Who knows, maybe a Mewalk Native American or someone got a big one in there long ago. In April of 1971 I cought a 9.5 pound largemouth bass from the shore of our back yard. I had it mounted and still have it. Has anyone else caught one bigger? And do you have proof.

JUST MOVED HERE, AND HAVE TRIED TO MAKE A FEW CASTS WITH A ROOSTER TAIL LURE. WAS TOLD THE POND/LAKE HAS LITTLE TROUT, CATFISH AND CARP IN IT. I\'VE SEEN A BIRD EAT A TROUT, AND HAVE SEEN CARP SWIM THE SHORE LINE, SO I KNOW THOSE TWO FISH ARE IN HERE. I HAVE NOT CAUGHT A TROUT YET, BUT WILL TRY AGAIN WITH A ROOSTER TAIL OR KAST MASTER LURE AGAIN SOON. THE LAKE IS RIGHT NEXT TO MY HOUSE SO IT IS FUN TO WALK IT AND MAKE SOME CASTS

Fished two days, wind 15 mph each day so no top water in am, tons of fish on the sonar but we couldn\'t catch them. 2 days, 4 fish! I threw everything but the kitchen sink, all bottom gear, cranks, swim baits jerks, spinner baits you name it I did it. I fish tournament and I got to tell you that I have never seen so many fish on the sonar stacked up but this is the hardest lake I have ever fished..it made me wonder if these fish haven\'t spawned yet and they just weren\'t interested. Try again sometime if I am out that way, its a good 3 hour drive for me.
